Abstract—Assessment has always been fundamental to
teaching as it aims to gauge the impact of the teaching on
students learning. The current assessment in teaching computer
literacy is objective assessment that focuses on making it
intentional, informative, and formalized. Although this
assessment is the best way when assessing large groups of
students at one limited time, it has a drawback of being limited
to check the knowledge of understanding terminology and
recalling steps of a particular process. This study introduces a
screen-capture technology based approach to performative and
authentic assessment. It involved design and implementation of
screen-capture assignments to assess computer maintenance
skills. The sample consisted of 28 students enrolled in computer
hardware and software maintenance classes. Data from
students was collected through a multi-modal student survey
and a semi-structured interview. The results analysis has
indicated that screen-capture performative assessment
promotes students’ engagement and learning level of solving
